from up the poppy hill

Watched a lovely animated film called Kokuriko-zaka kara (From up on Poppy Hill) at TIFF yesterday. The film felt like a classic Studio Ghibli production with very realistic, genuine and emotional plot + characters—very similar to Whisper of the Heart, Ocean Waves and Only Yesterday.

An added bonus, like so many Ghibli films in the past, Kokuriko-zaka kara had an unforgettable soundtrack! Aoi Teshima, who provided the theme song for Tales from Earthsea, sung the songs for this film. Listen to the theme song for Kokuriko-zaka kara below:
